Princes of the Apocalypse
NAME was born an orphan. He doesn’t know what happened to them, but he’s always wondered. In fact, NAME was always a curious child. He spent his free time spying, eavesdropping, and more intense people watching. One time, a man came to visit the village that NAME resided. The man was dressed in odd clothes and stood out among the average peasants that walked the streets. NAME followed him throughout his dealings in the small village. Eventually NAME was discovered, but the man wasn’t angry. He was impressed with his investigative skills. So the man took NAME in and introduced him to Zhentarim.
The Zhentarim became the only family that NAME ever had. He owes them everything and remains fiercely loyal to them. NAME has become a thorough investigator for the Zhentarim and is often utilized for missions more out of their reach. On one such adventure, NAME discovered a mysterious tome. After the tome opened, a flash erupted out of its pages blinding him temporarily. Suddenly he felt transported to another realm. He could feel the presence of something else in the room. The being spoke to him, enlisting him as an “observer”. He has not tasks and is in no way some special servant of some powerful being. He just goes around doing what he’s always doing and the mysterious being observes from somewhere else. The being has many observers. Now, NAME is one of them.
